I'm not claiming that the current balance is right.
Hmm... the core development team (those who make commits once a month or more frequently) is very small, the number of people doing bug triaging is currently good but also small. We have patches and issues in the tracker that may have responses but will never get properly looked at because no-one on the core team is interested or has the mental bandwidth, we have possibly hundreds of modules in the standard library without a maintainer.
I think it is very much in the interest of Python to evolve our processes in order to encourage more core-developers. Evolving means experimenting *and* being willing to change. It is certainly less *effort* to accept the status quo, but with several more committed and enthusiastic (and good) core developers there is an awful lot (more) we could achieve.
All the best,
Just that it's not obvious that it's *wrong*, and therefore the decision should be left up to the people who will do the mentoring, the supervision, and -- if necessary -- the cleanup. If the existing tracker crew is happy with Sean's recommendation, and similar recommendations in the future, I'm happy too. But it is a process change, and they should be comfortable with it.
